One of the biggest challenges of being a high school English teacher is getting students what they want to read. As a teacher, it is my job to show them that literature can serve as the perfect backdrop for deep discussions about issues and ideas that affect them on a daily basis. My job is to prepare them for the real world by helping them to formulate their own opinions and view the world with a discerning eye. Today, students deal with so many issues outside of the classroom and never have an outlet where they can discuss and work through them in a productive manner, novel studies using books like these provide just that. The books that I have chosen have characters that are easy to connect with and plots that are engaging while still addressing some big controversial issues. Novels like these are as challenging as they are exciting. They set the stage for incredible Socratic discussions and provide a platform on which students can build skills to help them succeed academically and beyond the classroom.
